Avery’s Battlefield (book one 1861-62) and Avery’s Crossroad (book two 1863-65) contain the story of Avery Junior Bennett and his hound dog Gunner who left their home in Kanawha, VA, in 1861 when Avery was 14 years old. He didn’t leave to join the war; he left on a family errand. But the war caught up to them, and Avery and Gunner spent the next five years working in the field hospitals in Richmond and Alexandria, serving men on both sides of the conflict.
